A different kind of thanks

So here we are. Thanksgiving week and taking time to slow down and reflect on things we have to be thankful for: Our Freedom, the people, places and things is our lives, etc.

What is something a bit out of the ordinary that you are thankful for? Not just your bike, your job, your girl, or your X-Box.... But, something really special or different.

Re: A different kind of thanks

I'm thankful I was born a male. I couldn't deal with hormones, bleeding, pregnancy, and guys hitting on me all the time (actually I do deal with that one). Plus I think guys are given more opportunities and more respect than women. And women always have to go the extra mile to prove themselves worthy. I'm too lazy for that. Also, I'd rather be the one eating the sammiches, not the one makin em

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

Re: A different kind of thanks

I'm thankful for my brothers-in-arms (Canadian and American) that I have had the pleasure to serve, deploy and come home with (some in wheel chairs, some in boxes, some walking). My wife is extremely thankful for whoever invented kevlar to stop bullets and reduce road rash

"If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid."

Out of every one hundred men in battle, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back. ― Heraclitus

^I'm thankful for our armed forces

Seriously, hats off to them. They lay their lives on the line for the simple reason that they love freedom and the security of the citizens of their home country. That's pretty freakin' awesome.



I'm also thankful to live in a place where riding season is 10 months long.
